This garden surrounds a commercial property in Kent. The garden covers 15 acres including vast swathes of perennial planting, a restaurant courtyard, a North American prairie, a native wildflower meadow, a large area of woodland with extensive understory planting and ornamental ponds.

Completed in 2012, over 70,000 plants were added and approximately 100 semi mature trees planted throughout. The prairie was established from seed using a mix designed by professor James Hitchmough, who was also responsible for the prairie planting around the London 2012 Olympic stadium. The gardens provide a tranquil environment for the employees of the company and visitors to the site.
